Protecting your home

(NAPS)-Men and women may worry more about different home-security issues, but there's one thing both can agree on: Nagging doubts about whether they did or didn't take the proper precautions before leaving can kill a vacation or evening out.
That explains why national family safety expert Alison Rhodes-whose TV appearances on the likes of "The Today Show" have earned her the title The Safety Mom-now suggests in-stalling a new system she says "gives you the freedom to control your home at your convenience."
Along with the traditional benefit of an alarm system, ADT Pulse home monitoring system allows users to video-monitor everything from visitors to package deliveries to children arriving home safely from school-all from a laptop or smart phone. Beyond that (way beyond that, in fact), not only can doors be remotely unlocked and relocked, but thermostats and lights can likewise be adjusted to save as much as 30 percent on utility bills.
Which feature is most appealing may be gender-dependent. A recent Harris Interactive survey found men more concerned over whether they locked the front door, as opposed to women's focus on whether appliances were turned off.
